The purpose of the Cornish Historical Society is to collect and preserve the history of the town of Cornish, Maine. We were incorporated in 1993, just prior to the town’s Bicentennial. One of our first projects was to edit and re-publish the town history book – accomplished in time for the Bicentennial Celebration held in 1994. See a member to purchase a copy.

The Cornish Historical Society meets the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. spring summer and fall meetings are held at our home at 40 Main Street. Winter meeting are held at the office of Cote & Howe Realty, 81 Maple Street. We’d love to see you!
